Interesting! I listen mostly to JGB about '75-'80, with only occasional forays earlier and later. Not that there isn't some good stuff earlier and later, but I've narrowed the range of what for me is most likely to please. Earlier, is varied. Some great things, and some stuff like LOM that I am just not going to want to listen to all the way through. Later, also varied and more likely to be croaky Jerry, low-energy (or the opposite, frenzied in a cocaine-ish sort of way that I don't like). I do like Garcia with Grisman from any era, and I like the later gospely vibe, when they pull it off, which isn't always. (It's a great sound when it works, it just doesn't work often enough.)

Ringolevio, my previous JGB post has fallen off the edge of the world now, but I was interested to know what it was about Legion Of Mary that you didn't like ?
Not that you *have* to like LOM, of course.

I'm guessing that you aren't liking Reconstruction much either ?

I hadn't forgotten, it's on my mental list to listen to some more LoM and see if I just haven't listened to the right stuff, or what. I tend not to be crazy for horns, that's part of it.

See, even JGB 1975 doesn't do that much for me, apart from the Edward -> Let's Spend the Night Together performances and a few other things. I know I am supposed to be knocked out that it's Nicky Hopkins, but I find him rather a sloppy mess in the '75 JGB context.

Well, he said he was drunk the whole time, so I'm sure it's sloppy. I'm not discerning enough to pick up on that ...
